Literally just outside of Newcastle Main train station. Very well located for several amenities - O2 Arena, Life Centre, Metro Radio Arena, a Metro stop just outside.Walking distance to Eldon Square for shopaholics (of which I'm not!) Attended a course yesterday to begin with, and yes, the conference rooms can get cold but just dress warmly - no doubts this...

Great location being directly across the road from the train station. Breakfast was good; well presented with plenty of choice. My room was small and very tired. The bathroom was a perculiar shape and in desperate need of a makeover. I was disappointed with the white bedding which was a grubby grey colour . My room was on the front...

Stayed at the County Hotel whilst in Newcastle to see Cirque du Soleil. The hotel is located right in the centre opposite the train station, so is perfect for the bars and restaurants in the local area. Upon arrival, the hotel looks grand when you walk through the door. At only £80 for the night, we thought we had hit...

Have just spent a lovely weekend here. Location is great for shops, bars and restaurants. Also very easy to get to by train, metro or taxi. The room was very comfortable and clean. Slept really well. Breakfast was excellent. A great selection of freshly cooked food and very friendly, helpful staff. Would recommend a stay here!

Good value but bedrooms desperately tired. Floors creak so you can hear comings and goings from room above. Staff all very nice and friendly. Breakfast is very good. And banquet dinner was enjoyable too. When bar is busy more staff needed especially as that's where your espresso machine is. Hate queuing for drinks in a hotel especially as hotels should...
